president george w. bush made his case for going to war with iraq and why mideast dictator was an essential step for both the united states and the world. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with biological and chemical weapons, possesses ballistic missiles, promotes international terror, and seeks nuclear weapons. >> nearly 11 years later another u.s. president is explaining why he feels getting involved in the middle east is in the best interest of the u.s. people. my next guest though says the similarities between the two conflicts are few. jane newton small is a terrific reporter and times magazine reporter. you've written an article that a lot of team are talking about for "time," "six ways syria 2013 isn't iraq in 2003." differences you say include how the u.s. is handling the regime, the time commitment given by the u.s., the support from the arab world and yooirp, weapons of mass destruction, and how much support there is from congress. let's begin with the first difference you list. regime change. explain

? joining me is george w. bush's security advisor and the former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and book author. welcome to both of you. bill richardson, how damaging is it potentially to president obama and his plans for military action in syria that the british government and british prime minister david cameron suffered a defeat in parliament with a clear will from the british people and many members of parliament not to take military action in syria? >> i think the president has to be very careful, and he is being careful. only 25% of the american people support military action in syria. secondly, we have to avoid the iraq war where there are no weapons of mass destruction so you have to have proof. thirdly, the president has to get a broad international coalition, other wise he hands a propaganda victory and assad can say very few countries support the united states with a strike. so i think he has to be deliberate on the military side that the strikes work to our advantage and to find ways to arm the rebels and destroy the command and control centers but at the u.n., too, i think even tho

at two other instances in which an american president used force, in the case of george bush in iraq, he had a congressional authorization and one u.n. resolution. in syria he has, president obama has neither of those but i think the u.s. congress and many in the need yaw are saying, what about libya? i mean we went to war in libya without a congressional authorization. we spent one billion dollars. we had 220 tomahawk missile strikes, et cetera, et cetera. what do we have at the end of it? we have benghazi with dead american ambassador and three diplomats and a country not really controlled by its own government. are we any better off? so there is so much skepticism as lauren pointed out, within the media but it mostly is based on america's previous experiences using force projecting force, mostly on its own. jon: let me take you to the second part of that charles krauthamer column because he touches on some of those points that you just made, judy. he also wrote last year, mr. obama told us repeatedly that the tide of war is receding. this year he grandly declared that the entire war o
